Oregon police arrested a man and woman after they say they broke into several homes stealing five AK-47s.
"Oregon police want to put residents' minds at ease because they believe they've arrested the two people responsible for breaking into homes," said Chief Mike Navarre, Oregon Police Department.
The two people Oregon police say they think are responsible for the rash of break-ins over the last couple of weeks are 30-year-old Chad Bedford of Oregon and 20-year-old Hope Mendoza of Martin. The two were arrested on Thursday May 1 for breaking into homes in Monroe and Toledo.
"This was a great cooperative effort between the Oregon detectives and the Toledo police detectives," said Navarre.
Navarre says this was is a serious case. Electronics, hardware equipment, five AK-47s and three handguns were stolen from homes in the Bayshore and Southshore neighborhoods.
"That's always a concern when there are guns out on the streets in the hands of criminals," said Navarre.
Navarre says some of the stolen property has been recovered, including some of the guns. Bedford and Mendoza have only been charged with the break-ins that occurred on Thursday.
"At this point I can say with a high degree of confidence that these are the individuals that were responsible for the break-ins that occurred in Oregon," said Navarre.
Navarre says these were not just random acts of crime, but break-ins that contributed to a drug habit.
"They were selling that property as quickly as they stole it to get cash to feed their drug dependency," said Navarre.
